Danube Delta

Itinerary

Routenkarte Donau Delta

This is the departure point for your Danube cruise. Our tip: to ensure that you get off to a relaxed start, travel the day before the cruise begins and spend the night at one of our partner hotels. This will allow you to explore the region around Passau, too. And when your ship sets sail for an exciting Danube cruise, you will have already enjoyed your first few adventures.

This is a real highlight of your Danube cruise: Vienna, the capital of Austria with that extra-special something. The locals sound as though they are singing when they speak, and it is customary for certain business owners to address their regular customers with their full title. That’s just the way things are done here. With its wealth of museums, galleries, palaces and castles, plus the state opera and many theatres, the city enjoys a lively cultural scene all year-round. The Viennese are proud of their city – and rightly so!

Kalocsa

Arr 03:00 pm Dep 03:30 pm

During your Danube cruise, the ship will call at Kalocsa, where we will stop briefly. This town lies to the south of Hungary’s capital, Budapest. Its best-known tourist attraction is the Paprika Museum. Did you know that Kalocsa has the largest pepper-growing area in the world?

Mohács

Arr 06:00 pm Dep 10:00 pm

This idyllic little town on the Danube in southern Hungary is a delightful place to visit. Its pleasant location, snug alleyways and generous squares lend it a relaxing atmosphere. The country’s southernmost Danube ferry plies back and forth here, before the river leaves Hungary and flows into the Black Sea. Your river cruise will take you to one of the Danube’s most beautiful towns, which is also a carnival hotspot.

Belgrade is a well-kept secret among Europe’s many metropolises. The capital of the Republic of Serbia, it is the country’s political, cultural and economic centre. It has a population of around 1.7 million, making it the country’s most populous city too. Belgrade’s location makes it a hub for travel between central and south-eastern Europe. During your Danube cruise, you’ll get to experience Belgrade up-close and enjoy this wonderfully varied city.

During your cruising day, enjoy watching the scenery drift by as you look forward to the next towns and cities. Our tip: the SPA-ROSA is a great place to unwind and pamper yourself during your day on the river.

During your Danube Delta cruise, you’ll discover the beautiful port of Rousse. Many people consider this pearl of northern Bulgaria, nestled among the most varied landscapes of the eastern Danube plain, the country’s prettiest city. By the time you have taken a stroll along Ulitsa Aleksandrovska, between Rousse’s two main squares, you’ll probably feel the same. Enjoy your day in Bulgaria!

Sulina

Arr 09:00 am Dep 10:00 am

The town of Sulina lies at the heart of the Danube Delta. This is where the Danube flows into the Black Sea, and no other stop on this cruise will bring you this close to the coast. Sulina used to be prosperous and was home to people of many different nationalities, but things are very different now. After the fall of the Iron Curtain, Sulina’s importance dwindled. Present-day Sulina still shows traces of its communist past: explore its history during your visit!

Tulcea

Arr 03:00 pm Dep 11:00 pm

It’s time to explore the Danube Delta! Tulcea is your stop today. The city can look back on a very eventful past. Once part of Bulgaria, it is now an important Romanian port and is considered the gateway to the Danube Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After your day’s explorations, your cruise will take you right into the Delta – an exciting passage with splendid views.

Bucharest – Romania’s capital – is a city of fascinating contrasts. Beautiful boyar houses compete with concrete walls and glass facades, while straight avenues morph into winding streets. Bucharest is characterised by a constant contrast between poverty and prosperity. Having been under dictatorial rule during its time as a socialist republic, it still seems to be in need of regeneration today. But in spite of this, it’s still a city you can fall in love with.

The capital of the autonomous province of Vojvodina makes quite an impression, with the mighty Petrovaradin fortress occupying the right bank of the Danube and the picturesque old town of Novi Sad standing atop the left bank. With around 220,000 inhabitants, it is Serbia’s second-largest city. Tourists are captivated by the old town – which looks as though it could almost be Italian. Will it cast a spell on you too? During this Danube cruise, you’ll have the chance to find out.

Do you know how many bridges Budapest has? There are seven in total – and they span the river between the neighbourhoods Buda and Pest. The most well known is probably the Széchenyi Chain Bridge. Take a look at Budapest’s imposing structures for yourself as you cruise down the Danube. And if you go out onto the sun deck of your A-ROSA ship, you’ll also have an unobstructed view of Budapest’s famous parliament building. The perfect way to experience a stunning city.

Bratislava, home to approximately 450,000 inhabitants and located on the left bank of the Danube, is a young capital city – the youngest in Europe, in fact. Throughout the old town, you’ll see traces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire wherever you go. This leisurely city of baroque and rococo, palaces and palisades, and art and coffee houses is a perfect place to wander around, marvel at impressive sights, relax and unwind.

Wachau

You are about to enjoy a real treat for the senses as you experience the Wachau up close. You will be mesmerised by the famous Danube valley between Melk and Krems. Taking in this fascinating river landscape as you stand on the sun deck of one of the A-ROSA Danube fleet is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is no wonder that the Wachau is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This really is an absolute must-see.

Linz

Arr 04:00 pm Dep 11:00 pm

Your Danube cruise is the perfect opportunity to get to know the Austrian city of Linz. It offers an exciting mix of cultural attractions and true works of art. You’ll discover a modern, cosmopolitan city whose diversity, design and creativity really make it stand out. And no visit to Linz would be complete without a trip to a cafe to sample its specialities, such as the famous Linzer Torte.
